    I live in Ohio, and I've been putting some serious thought into getting my concealed carry. I looked at the map on packing.org that shows what states accept an OH CCW, and west virginia is not one of them. I end up down there from time to time as I grew up on the border, and was trying to figure out a way to be able to legally carry down there. WV does not give out of state CCW's.

    WV has reciprocity with Kentucky and Virginia. Kentucky does not allow out of states, but VA does. After I get my OH CCW, can I get an out of state VA one, in order to carry in WV? Are there any laws that prevent me from having CCW's from two different states, and would I be allowed to carry in WV with an out of state VA card?

    Cliffs: is it worth my time and money to get CCW's from two states to get around reciprocity?

    Apparently KY and VA are your only choice, and I don't think they do out of state CCW applications.

    edit: VA does, but WV doesn't honor it anyway.

    Is it worth your time? You tell us.... I have 3 different state CHL's to cover most every place I regularly travel. For me it's important to be able to protect myself and my family, for you it depends on what you want out of it.

    That same bullshit is keeping me out of SC. They don't have a non-res CCW and don't honor anyone ele's non-res.

    They just created their version of a non-resident permit in SC, BUT you have to own property there to qualify. Fuckers.

    Everyone needs to follow the lead of VT an AK as far as I'm concerned...

    That's a very useful site, and unless I'm reading it wrong, according to it WV would indeed honor that VA permit.

    That would be preferred, but I have some friends that live down there.

    Unless it is specifically against out of state VA permits, WV most certainly will honor VA permits.

    Sounds like right now I have no option, so I may as well wait it out and see if they will accept OH permits :(

    Could be worse. You could live in WI, IL, NY, or CA..

    HI is the worst "may issue" state. At least some people have gotten CCW in NY & CA, not many though.

    HI has NEVER issued a CCW permit to a civilian.

    I lived in ID and it honored everyone permit. It is one of the most Gun FRIENDLY state in the union. ID didn't care where you permit was from, just that you had one.
